Estonian illustrator Ulla Saar is participating at the seminar at London Book Fair:  “Rising stars: Children’s Authors and Illustrators from the Baltics”.

Ulla Saar is an illustrator, product designer, graphic artist, and interior designer. She graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts in product design, and is currently working as a designer. Her first illustrated book, Lift, immediately received widespread recognition, and was listed in the 2014 White Ravens catalogue. Since then, every one of her books has gained international attention. Saar practices a contemporary, design-like approach to book illustration: her spirited and playful art is often more a part of the book’s overall design than free-standing pictures.
